The first thing that entered my mind when I woke up this morning was: 1) There was no electricity; and 2) There was most certainly no oven to use for my strata and bacon. It was 5:30 am and it seemed like typhoon Lando was not ceasing any time soon, which added much to my anxiety. Should I postpone? Would my ingredients… More My Birthday Brunch!
Have you ever had that one moment that turned out to be spectacularly better than how you planned or intended it to be? Well, that was exactly what happened on the actual day of my 26th birthday this year. Call me highly appreciative, because the tone of this entry would probably sound similar to the tone I used in… More My Sunny 26th Birthday!

This is the first time I tried oil painting. Very tricky, this one, as it turned out very difficult to manipulate. I’m no maestro and my first work may look very amateur-ish but I found this project the most calming I’ve had in months. There’s something about having lost myself in the creation of… More Project: Oil on Canvass
